Half-centuries from captain Chris Rogers and Garry Park set-up Derbyshire's 59-run win against Durham in the Twenty20 Cup.

Both men made 50 and were supported by Stuart Law (42) as the visitors made 175-6 after losing the toss.

Tom Lungley (3-16) then removed Michael di Venuto and Will Smith in successive balls to reduce the hosts to 9-2.

Kyle Coetzer (31) and Phil Mustard (23) tried to lead the fightback, but Durham were eventually dismissed for 116.

Park followed up his success with the bat by picking up 2-16 with his medium pace.

Tim Groenewald and Mark Lawson also picked up two wickets each as the home side were bowled out inside 16 overs.

BBC Newcastle's Martin Emmerson reviews Durham's defeat to Derbyshire:

"Following the euphoria of Trent Bridge on Sunday, Durham's players were given a cricketing lesson by Derbyshire, something which did little to impress the 2,600 who braved a chilly May evening to see this.

"Stuart Law grabbed the headlines with his new Mongoose bat and scored a quick-fire 42 with it, but the damage had been done earlier in the game with half-centuries from former Durham player Garry Park and captain Chris Rogers.

"They were chasing what would have been their biggest score against Derbyshire in the competition and got nowhere near. Coach Geoff Cook says his players need to start asking questions of themselves and their attitude to batting in particular and it's hard to disagree on this performance.

"To lose by 59 runs is a big defeat, especially with so many overs to spare. Is this just a blip or is it a worrying return to the Twenty20 form of old?"
